Moments with God

New Testament Bible Reading Plan

Day 3

Day 3 Bible Reading Plan


Today we are going to be reading Matthew 2 and Luke 2:39-52. Don’t forget to begin and end this Moment with God, in prayer! 

Remember these questions are just optional, up to each one of you whether you do any of them.


Study Questions on Matthew 2

Who knew where Christ should be born but did nothing about it? (4-5)



What phrase shows Herod to be the ultimate in hypocrisy? (8)



In what physical structure was Jesus when the wise men found him? (11)



How old was Jesus when the wise men found him? (11,13)



What gifts did they give to Jesus? (11)



How did the wise men return to their country compared to the way they came? (12)



Why did Joseph and Mary take Jesus to Egypt? (13)



How did Joseph know to return to Israel? (19)



Why did they go to Nazareth? (22-23)



What is the difference between a Nazarene and a Nazarite? (23)



Study Questions on Luke 2:39-52

What is the only event recorded in the Bible regarding the boyhood of Jesus? (41-42)



Where might not be a good place to look for Jesus? (44)


What was the reaction of those who heard him in the Temple? (47)



What was the reply of Jesus when Mary said, “thy father and I sought thee sorrowing”?




What shows the obedience of Jesus to Joseph and Mary? (51)



In what four ways did Jesus grow? (52)



Food for thought question…

Is it possible today to only suppose Jesus is in your company? (43-44)



  1. What does it mean that Jesus grew in wisdom and in stature and in favour with God?

    • I feel that the wisdom and stature part means that Jesus continued to learn and grow wiser and taller in the ways of mankind. The part about “in favour with God and man” means that he followed the ways of the Lord and obeyed Him and did no wrong, and God looked down on him with pleasure because of it. The with man part just means that he was well liked among those who he knew.

Oaks Of Righteousness

Isaiah 61:1-3 "The spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has annointed me; He has sent me to bring good news to the oppressed, to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and release to the prisoners; to proclaim the year of the Lords's favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; and to comfort all who mourn; to provide for those who mourn in Zion -- to give them a garland instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the mantle of praise instead of a faint spirit. They will be called Oaks of Righteousness, the planting of the Lord, to display His glory.
